5 Ways to Cut Calories

People Reading: 22

Once you understand the calories in vs. calories out equation, weight loss becomes simple. But that doesn't necessarily mean that weight loss is easy. In order to cut calories from your daily diet, you need to make changes to your eating habits and to your lifestyle. And change is never easy.

But if you start with small adjustments to your meals and to your daily activity level, the changes are generally tolerable. So where is the best place to begin? Here are a few steps you can take to increase the number of calories you burn and decrease the number of calories you eat.

Increase your daily steps. Walk more each day. You don't even have to work out to increase your step count. Just make small adjustments to your routine. For example, park further away from your office or workspace so you have to add extra steps to get to the front door. Take the stairs instead of the elevator to your apartment. Take the dog for a walk after dinner.

Cut portion sizes in half. At mealtime, look at your plate and decide if you really need all of the food that you have served yourself. In many cases, you can cut your portion sizes in half. This is especially true in restaurants where portion sizes tend to be very large.

Swap high-calorie drinks. If you are a typical American, you consume several high-calorie drinks each day. Sugary sodas, juice drinks, and coffee drinks are common culprits. If you can drink water instead, you can cut 100-400 calories or more from your daily intake.

Skip condiments and sauces. You can reduce the calories in your sandwich at lunchtime by avoiding mayonnaise or other high-fat spreads. And if you can avoid creamy sauces on your pasta or chicken dishes you'll cut fat and calories even more.

Start an easy exercise program. If you want to burn more calories, you don't necessarily have to go to the gym every day or work out to the point of exhaustion. Instead, start an easy exercise program at home and commit to a 20-minute session in the comfort of your living room. A small amount of exercise can make a big difference in the way your body looks and feels.
